Wastewater Bacteria by Michael H. Gerardi

Book Description

A practical guide to wastewater bacteria and the roles they perform in wastewater treatment Communicating material in a practical manner for operators and technicians who regulate and troubleshoot their wastewater treatment processes, Wastewater Bacteria discusses the effective control and proper operation of aerobic (activated sludge) and anaerobic (anaerobic digesters) biological treatment units to ensure that an adequate, active, and appropriate population of bacteria is present in each treatment unit. It is a hands-on guide to understanding the biology and biological conditions that occur at each treatment unit. Avoiding unnecessary technical jargon and chemical equations, Wastewater Bacteria, the fifth book in the Wastewater Microbiology Series, explores and explains: Bacteria and the wastewater environment Enzymes and sludge production Nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur bacteria Floc formation and filamentous organisms Nitrification and denitrification Sulfate reduction, fermentation, and methane production Toxicity Foam and malodor production The goal of Wastewater Bacteria is to enable plant operators to achieve the twofold basic objectives of wastewater treatment-to degrade organic wastes to a level where a significant, dissolved oxygen demand is not exerted upon receiving waters and to remove nutrients to levels where photosynthetic organisms in receiving waters are limited in their growth. This straightforward manual equips plant technicians to meet these objectives with essential information to understand the biological processes and organisms involved in wastewater treatment.

Biology and Troubleshooting of Facultative Lagoons by Michael H. Gerardi Biology and Troubleshooting of Facultative Lagoons, Paperback (November 2011)

For years, operators have been taught that they have very little control over lagoon and fixed film sewage treatment systems. This book gives these personnel a new understanding of how these processes work and does so in a practical manner that emphasizes necessary information for understanding biological conditions at the treatment process.

Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactor by Michael H. Gerardi Troubleshooting the Sequencing Batch Reactor, Paperback (August 2010)

For years, operators have learned that they have little control over lagoon and fixed film sewage treatment systems.

Microscopic Examination of the Activated Sludge Process by Michael H. Gerardi Microscopic Examination of the Activated Sludge Process, Paperback (August 2008)

An invaluable troubleshooting tool,Microscopic Examination of the Activated Sludge Process addresses how to use the microscope and provides proper techniques for sample preparation. It explains how to relate and interpret observations and whether observing conditions are desirable or undesirable.

Wastewater Pathogens by Michael H. Gerardi Wastewater Pathogens, Paperback (November 2004)

This manual provides the reader with a review of the significant pathogenic groups of organisms and specific pathogens of concern within wastewater and sludges. Groups reviewed include viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and helminthes or worms.
